> Hello Gilles,

> So I tried a DB update. But I have problems using it:
> 1) I wanted to reread metadata from a single directory recursive,
> where all my videos are located. But how do I do that?
> I selected the directory in the "Process items from" section of the
> maintenance window.
> But what do I have to set for tags?
> I tried with a single tag but then digiKam also updated pictures that

> want.
> 2) Video metadata was not refreshed if the files had an XMP sidecar.
> 3) Video is still displayed using the wrong aspect ratio even if
> digiKam now reports the correct aspect ratio of "16:9", width=1024 and
> height=756.
> Any ideas?
> Best regards,

>>> Hello Gilles,
>>> thanks for your answer.
>>> I'm quite surprised that it's because of exiv2, I never thought of
>>> searching in that direction.
>>> Seems I have to wait until exiv2 v0.24 hits Gentoo's portage.
>> Ah, you don't use yet Exiv2 0.24 ? this is why ratio look weird...
>> only 0.24 support video files.
>> Warning : as digikam register item width and height in database to
>> compute ratio, you need to force DB to be updated with items metadata.
>> There is a Maintenance tool for that. Else, ratio will not change in
>> digiKam after a simple Exiv2 update...
